Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, everyday necessities like food, sanitary goods, and even shelter for some are scarce. During this time of global crisis, it is so important for those who have the power and the platform to make change and  help those who cannot help themselves. Celebrities and companies who have the means to give back, should be doing just that. There are many who are, whether it be encouraging words, donations, or food, we applaud them!

The Resident, a medical drama series filmed in Atlanta, donated gowns, masks, gloves, and other healthcare products to Grady Hospital. The Good Doctor and Grey’s Anatomy, two other medical drama series filmed in LA, also donated supplies to their local fire stations. Executive producer of Grey's Anatomy told E! News, “They were tremendously grateful. At Grey's Anatomy, we have a back stock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for our health care workers during these incredibly difficult times, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home.”





Netflix is setting the bar for major companies! They have established a $100M relief fund to support out of work entertainment industry workers. During this time, most TV and movie production has ceased due to the COVID-19, leaving thousands without a job. Chief content officer, Ted Sarandos addressed this issue and said, “ We are only as strong as the people we work with, and Netflix is fortunate to be able to help those hardest hit in our industry through this challenging time.”

Rihanna's foundation, Clara Lionel Foundation, has donated $5M to relief efforts to those on the front lines of the Coronavirus efforts. Focusing on marginalized communities in the US, the Caribbean, and Africa, the money provided will provide protective gear to hospital workers and first responders. 



Kerby Jean Raymond, designer of Pyer Moss, has committed to turning his NYC office into a donation center for N95 masks and gloves for the New York area. He is also setting aside $50,000 for minority and woman owned small creative businesses who are currently in distress, a feat that is so important since small businesses are the companies who will be affected most by this pandemic. 

This is just a short list of those who have contributed to the battle against the Coronavirus. Although all of us may not be fortunate enough to give as much as these celebs and companies have, we can still take their kind words and encouragement to heart and to practice. To those who have positively impacted communities and people during this crisis, thank you! Your efforts are not going unnoticed!
